I have bin frinded by a frind of a freind on Fasebook.
She soonds viry nice, butt donut have spellchex.
It takes me ours to feegure out her posts on my whall.

Don't think I am some intellectual snob because I am not. I get all kinds of little red squigglys from my spell check. But for those instances I keep a dictionary on my desk. I kid you not, some of her posts on my wall are almost indecipherable,(red squiggly on that one..will look it up). In just one post I had "henharted"= inherited, "treable"=terrible and "clorestes"=cholesterol (yes, that is a hard one, I agree). And some I have never ever figured out. Like her "strict drawn computer". But, like I said, she soondz like a nize porsun and thooz are hard two finde in thiz wurld.

"BPLFLT"..no..it isn't some new texting slang.
It's the sound that makes me say "gosh dang,

What a silly fool I have been.
I forgot to shake the ketchup again."

Don't you just hate to do that? Then you get all that watery yuck on your hot dog bun. And I know you are thinking I could just buy the kind that stores upside down and avoid this problem. Well, I did. But nobody puts it away upside down. Which I guess makes me happy to know my family is not illiterate because they can at least tell when the print is right side up. And believe it or not, there is actually a Facebook page about this. I stumbled across it looking for a ketchup picture. Talk about your spare time.

I see that 5 South Dakota lawmakers are trying to pass a bill that would require anyone over the age of 21 to buy a gun in their fair state. A gun "sufficient to provide for their ordinary self defense". I have lots of questions about this. Like, what if you are a passifist and can't defend yourself? What if you are a masochist, and don't want to defend yourself? What if you have a right to a gun, but can't afford a gun...then will a gun be appointed to you (like an attorney)? What if you are a Barney Fife and will probably shot yourself in the foot? Oh, and how much money will the fair (?) state of South Dakota make selling gun permits and making everyone take mandatory gun safety classes? And don't forget a tax on guns and ammo that is sure to follow. Hey, I am all for the right to bear arms, we have guns in our house. But where does it say you have to bear arms? So, is the unemployment rate so low in South Dakota that this is what their representatives are worried about? Maybe 4 out of 5 South Dakota representatives own gun stores?

Do I do the humane thing?
Is there a humane way?
The trap is quick.
But so ICKY!
Poison is easy.
But then I have to find where
the stinky dead mouse dies. UGH

Did I mention that I have 4...yes..4 cats.? So why do I have a mouse in my kitchen? Because all the cats are sleeping in the living room...that's why.

Ever notice that no one mentions
fact that you are driving on a
one way street
unless you are
driving the
WRONG way on the
one way street?
Much ado then. :)

Tim and I went to our once a year Trailblazer game a month ago. Every time we go I remember our first trek up there. I was lost, kind of scared and worried we were going to miss the game. Every street is packed and one way..you know how it is. Finally I saw a group of people just standing around and one was wearing a uniform, like a cop or guard. And miracle of miracles...the road in front of them had a place to park. So I whipped in, rolled down my window and said "can you tell me how to get to the Rose Garden?" And the uniform guy says "No, and you better get off the tracks cause the train is coming." Well, duh. And then once I took my older son shopping and when we pulled out of the lot he said "um, Mom, this is a one way street...and it ain't the way you are going". Well, duh..again. But, that is why I asked my question. I drive one way streets almost daily and no one finds it pertinent to open their window and let me know I am on one. And there is no honking of the horns or middle finger waving just to celebrate the fact that we are all on a one way street. But let one poor sap (me) even go 10 feet the wrong way..and the celebration begins.
P.S. Sorry I posted early, but only have one day a week off so it was now or never.

Gilligans Island!

Just sit right back and I'll tell a tale
A tale of a fateful trip
Mike says it was a stupid sit-com
I say it was the onset of gay liberation.

I can't believe we even had this conversation, but we did. In my youth (way back in the way when), I loved this show. Then when reruns showed up on tv, I realized it was just stupid. And now I realize it was just a totally gay show. I mean, grown men totally ignoring a couple of hotties like Ginger and Mary Anne??? And that whole "Skipper" and "Little Buddy" thing? If those aren't some gay euphemisms..then I don't know what is. Hope I didn't offend any die hard Gilligan fans out there (could there even be such a thing)?
